Tina Modotti & Edward Weston : the Mexico years by Sarah M Lowe( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tina Modotti and Edward Weston arrived in Mexico in 1923 at the start of an extraordinary period of artistic creativity that became known as the Mexican Renaissance. The book traces the interwoven lives and work of Modotti and Weston from the early 1920's in Los Angeles, where they met, until the 1930's, focusing in detail on their time together in Mexico, where virtually all of Modotti's photographs were taken. In bringing together for the first time close to 150 photographs by Modotti and Weston, it reveals the distinctive responses to Mexico of two photographers from widely different backgrounds. At the same time, like other Modernists in Mexico, these two artists self-consciously created work that broke wholly with the immediate past, and fashioned an idiom in defiance of traditional ideas. A selection of images by two Mexican photographers, Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Mariana Yampolsky, reveals how indigenous photography was influenced by these two foreigners

Edward Weston : photography and modernism by Theodore E Stebbins( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in German and English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third and culminating volume in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts' outstanding series on Edward Weston (1886-1958) examines the greatest works of Weston's career, his stylistic development, and especially the ways in which he responded to contemporary modernists. Comparative illustrations of work by Picasso, Brancusi, O'Keeffe, Diego Rivera, Henrietta Shore, and other artists provide a better understanding of these influences. Following an introduction by Theodore Stebbins, three sections of photographs with accompanying essays demonstrate the entire range of Weston's work: his work as a pictorialist before 1920; experimental portraits, landscapes, and still lifes from the Mexican Period; his landmark still lifes of shells and peppers; small-format portraiture and fragmentary nudes; the classic "high modernist" series of nudes and dunes from the 1930s; and his late abstract landscapes. Included are brilliant prints of Weston's most famous images, including Pepper 30, Excusado, and Palma Cuernavaca, as well as numerous unfamiliar photographs that broaden our understanding of this great photographer."--Jacket
Edward Weston : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by Brett Abbott( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The biography of the photographer Edward Weston (American, 1886-1958) is full of colorful vignettes of the sort that enliven popular accounts of an artist's life. The singular pursuit of aesthetic ideals (and the resulting financial hardships); the marriages, divorces, and affairs; the early onset of a debilitating illness - all punctuate most Weston histories. However, what remains at the core of any examination of the photographer's career is his body of work, which includes signature images that are among the finest in the medium." "In 2003 the Getty Museum, which holds a collection of about 240 Weston prints, hosted a colloquium on the photographer. This volume in the In Focus series records remarks by the author, Brett Abbott, along with those of six other participants: William Clift, Amy Conger, David Featherstone, Weston Naef, David Travis, and Jennifer Watts. Context for their conversation is provided by the author's introduction, plate texts, and chronology. Approximately fifty of Weston's images demonstrate why his work continues to resonate with a contemporary public and serves as a model for a host of photographers active today."--Jacket

Leaves of grass by Walt Whitman( Book )

7 editions published between 1942 and 1976 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.

Edward Weston, the form of the nude by Edward Weston( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward Weston (1886-1958) is one of the seminal figures of American twentieth-century photography. His series of nudes, landscapes and close-up still-lifes defined modernist photography in their formal elegance, simplicity and abstraction. The selection and pairing of the photographs in this book demonstrate Weston's fascination with the nude and its relationship with the other natural and abstract forms that he photographed. A concise and authoritative introduction to Weston's work, this book features some of Weston's best-known pictures - including the beautiful, celebrated nude studies of Tina Modotti and Charles Wilson and his remarkable still-lifes - as well as many lesser-known, but no less engaging, works."--BOOK JACKET

Winter in Taos by Mabel Dodge Luhan( Book )

1 edition published in 1935 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winter in Taos starkly contrasts Luhan's memoirs, published in four volumes and inspired by Marcel Proust's Remembrances of Things Past. They follow her life through three failed marriages, numerous affairs, and ultimately a feeling of 'being nobody in myself,' despite years of psychoanalysis and a luxurious lifestyle on two continents among the leading literary, art and intellectual personalities of the day. Winter in Taos unfolds in an entirely different pattern, uncluttered with noteworthy names and ornate details. With no chapters dividing the narrative, Luhan describes her simple life in Taos, New Mexico, this 'new world' she called it, from season to season, following a thread that spools out from her consciousness as if she's recording her thoughts in a journal. 'My pleasure is in being very still and sensing things,' she writes, sharing that pleasure with the reader by describing the joys of adobe rooms warmed in winter by aromatic cedar fires; fragrant in spring with flowers; and scented with homegrown fruits and vegetables being preserved and pickled in summer. Having wandered the world, Luhan found her home at last in Taos. Winter in Taos celebrates the spiritual connection she established with the 'deep living earth' as well as the bonds she forged with Tony Luhan, her 'mountain.' This moving tribute to a land and the people who eked a life from it reminds readers that in northern New Mexico, where the seasons can be harshly beautiful, one can bathe in the sunshine until 'untied are the knots in the heart, for there is nothing like the sun for smoothing out all difficulties.'--Amazon.com
